Thank you for supplying this list. I went with a large party to the Rainforest Cafe in the MGM for lunch yesterday. I identified myself to the server as having gluten issues. The head chef appeared at my table almost immediately, with the server at his side to listen to the conversation. He specifically asked whether I have Celiac Disease and then proceeded to walk me through planning my meal. He made a cheese burger for me which was pure beef, no filler, (no bun), with chopped lettuce and chopped tomato as the bed. The burger was cooked on a properly prepared grill. He offered me fries from the dedicated fryer (delicious) and even inquired about my sensitivity to the spices, which he named, including the brand. I had a wonderful meal and was able to enjoy this family event without worrying the whole time about my safety. Kudos to the Rainforest Cafe!

This is an old list and after spending a week here at a conference I find the place  pretty allergy unfriendly, Especially the Cosmopolitan Hotel with the except of comme ca    which was reasonably priced and the chef bent over backwards to make something  gluten free and vegan. The other places didnt  get it and would serve gluten-free salad with croutons or grilled veggies with regular soy sauce.  Call first when here or ask for the chef  to make sure they know what they are doing. I was really surprised considering the foodie reputation the city now has. Better yet come visit Hawaii!

    • Thanks a lot for your advice and the link. I will surely check upon GCED. But, doesn't a negative HTTG (can't do IgA ttg as IgA deficiency) result mean that I am not exposed to gluten ? 
    • Thank you for going through my long post and responding. I have been both dairy and gluten-free free for 10 months now. Yes, even I was worried about other food allergies. I mentioned it to my GI doc and asked if I need food allergy test to eliminate other allergens. He said, food allergy tests give a lot of false positives and are not accurate. He said: not everything is because of food allergy and it's refractory celiac which is causing issues as the jejunum biopsy, done recently, is showing villous flattening.

      My doubt: 1. If I have so much damage in my small intestine (villous flattening) then how was I keeping fine for 6-7 months ( eating eggs, soy, rice and meat) - was constantly losing weight though - but was able to work out regularly - not much fatigue. 2. If it is other food allergens ( out of mentioned allergens, I take eggs, soy chunks, almonds only) why does it happen only few times and not always - I keep well for 7-8 days and then fall sick again - this without any change in diet.  
    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!
